Chef Titik provided a wonderful experience learning about her culture and tasting our way through the dishes. The atmosphere was very warming and welcoming. I truly felt right at home.

24 Oct 2022
Chef Tikik was very friendly and a pleasant host to our French Moroccan Fusion experience. We were joined by 2 other couples which made for a fun evening. The food was delicious and well prepared. I feel like this class is definitely aimed towards those who already have cooking experience and is wanting someone to prepare a different style of food in front of them. We were both expecting a different style of hands on cooking class than this but maybe we needed to do better research on the appropriate class. In this class the Chef does a majority of the cooking. The guests will help with minor preparations such as slicing onions, peeling apples for the dessert, mixing various ingredients in a bowl. The most hands on was assembling our French onion soup in to our own bowls which we topped with the bread and cheese. Allergies: If you happen to be allergic to cats then this place is not for you. Chef Titik was very nice about asking if we needed to put the cat away. The cat does live in the home so her dander is already in and around the home. I don't think simply putting the cat away would avoid any cat allergy attacks. I didn't see this mentioned on the page prior to booking. My girlfriend is allergic to Almonds which I know its crazy we picked this course which serves 2 dishes that have almonds in it. We were thinking we were individually making our own meals where we could omit the almonds. Despite mentioning the allergy in the booking request we didn't get any messages from the host so we thought we were going to be ok with this food course. Thankfully we saw how the food was being prepared in the moment which allowed us to speak up. We mentioned her allergy and Chef Titik made sure we cooked the non almond crusted lamb first. She was really nice and made her a separate apple dessert which was a nice gesture. Overall, the food was delicious and was worth the money for the experience. Again, I recommend this course to those who have some kitchen experience already and is wanting to have someone else prepare them a new cuisine in front of you while you help with some side tasks. Chef Titik provided to go containers for any food we wanted to take with us which was awesome. I do wish we could have gotten the recipes written down to remake these meals despite just witnessing it being made once. I know most chefs measure by eye or love of the ingredient but a rough idea would have been nice. Thankfully there are tons of recipes online so we won't be terribly out of luck.
23 Oct 2022
Chef Titik was great. We love her, the food and the experience. Thank you, Chef Titik.

05 Sep 2022
Great experience. Highly recommend. We enjoyed learning to cook this incredible cuisine and it tasted great! Three course meal with enough to take home. Thanks for such a wonderful date night.

21 Nov 2021
Very fun experience!
02 Sep 2021
Chef Titik is a wonderful host and chef! I would love to take another cooking class with her. She led us through a super fun night of drinking, snacking, chopping, tasting, and chowing down. The soup was sweet and salty, the lamb was tender, the couscous + quinoa were delicious, and the galette, ice cream, and other surprise treats were great. I was very happy there were leftovers. Her kitchen and home is gorgeous and so welcoming. I appreciated how she balanced demonstrating, chatting with us, and answering all our foodie questions. The pace of the class was perfect and I really enjoyed getting to know the other guests there. We traded all sorts of tips, from the best places to get groceries and nice dishware to how to expertly prepare produce. It set a pretty high bar for my first Cozymeal class. Thanks for an awesome night! -Raven

18 Mar 2020
Chef Titik makes cooking fun, approachable, and customizable! I love that every recipe can be tailored to your tastes and the skills and equipment needed is perfect for the home chef. We thoroughly enjoyed the chef's stories and explanations on how to make each dish...also where substitutions could be made if it suited you! Chef Titik also had the cutest tea sets and platings, which were a plus! I would recommend a cooking lesson with Chef Titik anyday and for anyone of any skill level. Thank you for a memorable and fun experience!
08 Mar 2020
My fiance and I booked a cooking class with Chef Titik as a Christmas gift to my mother. My mom genuinely said this class is the best gift she's ever received! We had such a fun night cooking with Chef Titik. The food was amazing and the company was even better. We look forward to returning to another one of her classes!
07 Mar 2020
Chef Titik was a wonderful host we have an absolute blast cooking all her lovely food. Meal prep was fun and intuitive, chef kept participants engaged at all times teaching and demonstrating as we went all. Food was something you can relate to and actually make at home. Chef titik couldn’t be a more gracious and welcoming person. You literally cook and eat with her in her own home. It’s a great experience and would recommend to anyone. We’ll be back to take another one of Chef Titik’s other courses!
20 Feb 2020
Everyone loved her! A ton of fun and amazing food! Awesome!
14 Feb 2020
Chef Tiktik is amazing! Her class was great from start to finish. We cooked the best french onion soup that we had ever tried. The lamb and the dessert were amazing, too. My husband and I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day cooking with chef Tiktik.
09 Feb 2020
My girlfriend and I absolutely loved our evening cooking and eating with Chef Titik! She was a great teacher and the food was delicious - on top of all of that she was delightful company and we had great conversation while cooking and eating together. One of the best things about taking a cooking class in a home kitchen is that you learn how to cook amazing food using the ingredients, kitchen gear, and techniques that are accessible to any home cook! We would highly recommend to anyone, and we can't wait to try out one of Chef Titik's other classes!
25 Jan 2020

30 Dec 2019
Thank you so much, Chef Titik, for the wonderful evening! Chef clearly knew her stuff: within the first 5 minutes she had shared a handful of awesome kitchen tricks that clearly displayed her expertise in the kitchen. While she was very modest about it, we eventually learned that Chef had received a James Beard grant, an honor that was clearly well deserved! The dishes we made were delicious and we were so grateful to Chef for opening her beautiful home and wonderful experience to us. Thank you, Chef Titik!
30 Nov 2019
Chef Titik was so generous with her time and really teaching us about a cuisine my boyfriend and I had never experienced before. We learned so much and the food was absolutely delicious (with leftovers!). In fact, we were hungry to get more hands-on in the class! Would definitely recommend to others!
11 Nov 2019
Fantastic! Chef Titik is a wonderful host, delightful teacher, and phenomenal chef. She is a true pro: her cooking skills and techniques are terrific and everyone in our group learned something new. She kindly accommodated a vegetarian in our group without losing any of the flavors of the meal. And, finally, the food did not disappoint. Every dish was superb!
28 Jul 2019
We had a wonderful time at Chef Titik's home learning about her passion for cooking and teaching others how to cook. The Indonesian class was tasty and we are so excited to take what we have learned and try it on our own. Chef Titik was absolutely welcoming, we were comfortable the entire time, and there was enough food leftover to bring home! If you have a chance to take one of her classes, we highly recommend that you do!
20 Jul 2019
Chef Titik was phenomenal. Not only was the food she made absolutely delicious, it was very different from anything we had ever had. Her home is beautiful, and she went above and beyond to explain how to cook everything on our own, where to buy the ingredients, etc. Would highly recommend for any special occasion, or just as a great date :)
01 Jul 2019
Great time. I highly recommend Chef Titik. It was one of the best date nights I can remember.
18 Jun 2019
Wonderful, personal, and accommodating experience. There was no rush and we had a great time conversing and cooking.
17 Jun 2019
The most AMAZING take on Latin cuisine!! Chef Titik was the sweetest soft spoken Chef, I've ever met! From the moment me and my boyfriend arrived, we felt so comfortable. She greeted us with a smile and welcomed us into her immaculate, warm and cozy home. Her recipes were by far the easiest to follow and coincidentally the most flavorable food I've ever tasted! She showed us some of her techniques that she learned throughout her vast culinary history and heritage. I definitely got more than I expected! Cozymeal you hit the jackpot with Chef Titik! Thanks again! I will DEFINITELY be booking in the future and telling all my friends and family about the little sweet Indonesian woman who made me like guacamole and mussels ! ?
14 Jun 2019
We had a fabulous time, a fabulous meal, and learned several new cooking techniques that will come in handy. She was most friendly and welcoming and made the whole evening a joy and a unique experience. She made us feel a part of the family, and we enjoyed and was glad that her daughter ate with us as well!! It was quite easy to Uber there and get back from downtown Chicago. Getting out of downtown was a bit of a challenge at rush-hour, getting back was a breeze So glad we did this !!
01 Jun 2019
Chef Titik is so welcoming, warm, and knowledgeable and set the stage for the perfect double date night for our group. We experienced her Latin Flavors class at her cozy Chicago home and the food was outstanding! Hands down some of the best empanadas I’ve had. We learned a lot of great cooking techniques and tricks that my boyfriend and I now find ourselves using all the time. If you’re looking for a unique and memorable night out with loved ones, I highly recommend taking a class at Chef Titik’s.
24 May 2019
This was an amazing experience. We’ll definitely be back to do this again. Thank you chef Titik!
06 May 2019
My friend and I totally enjoyed our cooking class experience with chef Titik! She is very knowledgeable about Indonesian cuisine and shared with us its history as well as many useful cooking tips. To enhance our learning experience, almost all dishes are prepared from scratch. We spent the night making and enjoying multiple flavorful dishes, snacks and dessert included, all of which we can't wait to retry making at home!
04 May 2019
The food was excellent. Tirol was very pleasant and hospitable.
31 Mar 2019
Chef Titik was amazing from beginning to end. She was extremely welcoming and really made this dinner special. The flavors in the cooking were some that were unfamiliar to me, but truly captured my admiration. All of the dishes were delicious in their own right, and are some that I already plan to make on my own in the very near future and beyond. Chef Titik also was very knowledgeable on the history of Indonesia and the cuisine, and how it evolved over time. Although the meal was exceptional, Chef Titik is the real reason that this experience was memorable! I am so pleased with the night and am looking for to having more with Chef Titik. Thank you!
27 Mar 2019
Chef Titik was the best. She welcomed my girlfriend and I into her lovely home and turned my pretty good valentines day gift into an incredible one. I highly recommend others to try one of her classes. It was top 5 meals of my life.
08 Mar 2019
My wife, Amanda, and I had the pleasure of dining with Chef Titik for the Indonesian culinary experience. From the very start, Titik was extremely nice, hospitable, and fun! We enjoyed learning about the variety of ways to prepare and cook some of our favorite Indonesian dishes. We came out of this experience confident to try these at home. All thanks to Chef Titik! She was a great teacher and now a good friend!
06 Mar 2019
Chef Titik provided a wonderful evening of learning, fun, and delicious food. From the moment we walked in we felt very welcomed into her home. She had everything set up so we could just enjoy ourselves. She covered every detail, even down to a beautifully decorated dining table for us to enjoy the delicious recipes prepared that evening. It was my birthday and she went out of her way to make me feel special. She even decorated my dessert plate to say happy Birthday. She was wonderful! The class was a lot of fun. I highly recommend taking a class with Chef Titik.
26 Feb 2019
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time cooking with Chef Titik! She has a very inviting home and was patient and thorough when describing her cooking techniques.

01 Dec 2018
Wonderful class!! We learned to make several delicious dishes. Chef Titik helped us try some of the techniques. We learned a lot in a pleasant environment.
19 Nov 2018
The experience was so wonderful. I planned this class a few months ago with the intent on proposing to my girlfriend. Chef Titik was so great at coordinating with me and making the class so informative and fun! She really knows Indo food and you can tell the passion when she was teaching us in the class. She was a HUGE impact on the best night of my life proposing. Highly recommend taking one of her classes, you won't be disappointed! The food btw was soooo delicious, we are hoping one day she will open up a restaurant, my girlfriend and I will definitely be her first customers!!!
04 Nov 2018
Chef Titik is a wonderful host and a great teacher! We can’t recommend her highly enough. We had such a fun, relaxing, and delicious evening. She even accommodated our six month old after our nanny had to cancel last minute. Thanks Chef Titik, we’ll be back!
13 Oct 2018
My boyfriend and I feel so lucky to have found Chef Titik. Her home was lovely, she was accommodating and fun to cook with, and the food blew us away. She has so much knowledge to share about all types of cuisines, and you can tell she cooks from the heart. Our night with her was the highlight of the week. We can’t wait to book her again. Thank you, Titik!
09 Sep 2018
Chef Titik gave us an unbelievable journey into the gastronomic world of Indonesian fare and we are now die-hard fans. Apart from patiently teaching us the intricacies, she prepared a five-course feast that included the famed Rijstafel platter (with to die for beef rendang, nasi goreng chicken fried rice, kangkung water spinach sauteed with shrimp ), a Ikan Bakar whole grilled marinated fish, and so much more. I look forward to returning over and over again and sharing her with the rest of Chicago.
29 Aug 2018
Titik is amazing! She is very nice and patient! But best of all her cooking is amazing! She can cook anything, has amazing experience and a very interestign background! We loved learning from her and want to go back! Totally worth the money! Very recommended!
28 Aug 2018
Chef Titik was not only an amazing host and teacher, but also a great person to spend the evening with while you are preparing a sensational 4 dish meal that will exceed your expectations. Would come back 100%.
25 Jul 2018
Chef Titik and her daughter hosted my girlfriend and I a wonderful anniversary night that we wont forget. Her knowledge of food and techniques are presented in an easy to understand manner regardless of your skill level in the kitchen. More importantly, she gives off this motherly vibe that I much appreciate considering how far I am away from my hometown. Attended her Spanish flavors course and will most likely try her Indonesian flavors course the next time that we take another Cozymeal's course. My girlfriend and I very much recommend Chef Titik because of her homestyle vibes and caring attitude that you are having the best possible experience.
19 Jul 2018
My experience with chef Titik was awesome!! I would highly recommend her to any and everyone seeking to have a fun memorable night. She is very knowledgeable in her field as well as in other cultures. I booked this class for my partner and I in hopes to learn new ways of the kitchen while celebrating my partners Birthday. Our experience was extraordinary. The class we took was Spanish and Latin inspired. My partner is pescatarian and I’m vegetarian so I feared this would be a problem because in most places it usually is; But Chef Titik tweaked the menu to accommodate us both.

Chef Titik's class was outstanding. My wife and I decided to take her class to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We learned so much and had such a good time that I would highly recommend it for a date-night activity. One word of caution, bring your appetite with you. Once we finished preparing the four courses there was so much food. However, Chef Titik helped us pack up the leftovers to take with us. In all aspects she exceeded our expectations.

I've never had Indonesian food and now I'm hooked! Chef Titik brings a modern twist to classical Indonesian cuisine that perks your taste buds with the unique spices and ingredient combinations that is exclusive to Indonesia. She made everything look so easy as she prepared the various dishes. Her knowledge of Asian food in general is impressive- as is her ability to create some flavor fusions in her food. The chicken emañadas are not to be missed. The short ribs Rendang was delicious! I've never had chayote until now - yummm. And you must try her Martabak Manis [Indonesian pancakes filled with Nutella, cheese(!), crushed nuts, with condensed milk- amazing! I predict big things ahead for Chef Titik and her wonderful food.
